Rempel is the second of five politicians at the heart of the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform’s (CCBR) controversial “Face the Children” campaign. The announcement that CCBR is targeting Rempel follows on the heels of a sweeping postcard distribution last week in Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Riding.
CCBR’s postcard show Rempel’s face next to a 6-month aborted fetus. It highlights the fact that Rempel was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women by the Women’s Executive Network, and that she has been listed as “pro-choice” by Canada’s most radical abortion “rights” group, the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada.
This doesn't seem closely connected with the various Senate scandals engulfing the government. These particular activists have been agitatin' since last year. But for whatever reason, several elements of the Tory base seem to be coming unglued all at once. Luckily for Harper and co., 2015 is still a ways away. But I suspect these zealot eruptions will grow louder between now and then.
